WWE Raw results, recap, grades: Women’s title No. 1 contender emerges as WWE Draft concludes

The second night of the WWE Draft tends to be a little strange with the rosters in a state of disarray and very few storylines playing out as the dust continues to settle. That was largely the case again on Monday night with several matches featuring talent from both brands.

While this did produce a few good matches, most notably Jeff Hardy vs. AJ Styles vs. Seth Rollins, it also made for a very scattershot show that felt largely inconsequential less than two weeks out from the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view. But the draft is now complete, for better or worse, and fans can start to see the skeleton of the next year of WWE programming.

WWE Raw results: Live recap, grades as Clash of Champions fallout includes women’s title rematch

One night after Clash of Champions, WWE returns to the ThunderDome inside Orlando’s Amway Center for Raw. While WWE has not teased much action for the pay-per-view fallout show, fans do know that Zelina Vega will once again challenge Raw women’s champion Asuka.

Asuka successfully defended the championship at Clash of Champions, managing to survive a vicious bell-to-bell arm attack executed by Vega. Asuka would compliment Vega after the match and offer her respect, but Vega was not hearing it, instead attacking the champion before leaving the ring. Asuka would go on to challenge Bayley for the SmackDown title in a surprise later in the evening, though she came up short of leaving with both championships when Bayley chose to use a steel chair to get disqualified, saving her title in the process.
